This weekend we spent a lovely weekend in Norfolk at my Father’s and Ann’s home in Norwich. On arrival we were whisked off for lunch at the Ship Inn at South Walsham where there seemed to be a groom’s pre-wedding drinks party. We ate outside in the sun, waiting for the forecast rain which never arrived.
Next onto Ranworth Broad where we had a pre-booked trip on the private broad in an electric boat. Being somewhat early, we had time to visit the church of St Helen. This contains the greatest rood screen in East Anglia. It stretches right across the church, aisles and nave. The tower was also open, so Stephen (that is the author) climbed the very narrow spiral stair case to the top and snapped some images from the tower.
Then on to Ranworth Broad in the electric boat to view birds. I took some pictures, not the greatest, will have to purchase one of those mega paparazzi lenses or get nearer to the birds. Anyway saw some Terns, Grebes, Cormorants, Herons, a flash of a Kingfisher, ducks and gulls.
